Are there any satellite experts on this list?
This might be a long shot but...
I have two DishNetwork satellite dishes (antennas) that I will not be
needing soon. I was wandering if I can use them in combination with DVB card
(that I would have to buy) to get Free-to-air programming off of (for
example) Intelsat Americas 5 (Ku band) in continental USA? Would I need
different antennas? I have found that DVB system in US is DVD-S, is this
correct? Any recommendation on the receiver card that would work nicely with
To clarify, this has nothing to do with cable, DishNet, DirectTV or free OTA
channels. I already have HD3000 and PVR500 for those. This is mostly about
receiving European channel rebroadcasts for North America. I guess I still
have much to learn about wonderful world of satellites but for now I'm
trying to see what are my options.
Is anyone here doing something similar?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
